Japanese Anime

This is real feedback. This a very good example of sharing our particular kind of dance news with our readers and fellow dancers. First I receive a nice Email from Marie Laderta.

That Japanese Anime is very nice. I will be working on tomorrow's Platinum Horseshoe blog. May I share your goodies for our readers and fellow dancers? Regards to all the nice people out there and Mahalo. Pepe

To Pepe from Marie

Yes, of course. Please share with the readers. I think it's interesting that ballroom dancing is now the subject for Japanese Anime, which means that it is getting exposed to a younger and more digital audience .... Ballroom dancing has been a significantly revered and promoted recreation in Japan for many years. I note this from gleaning the history of the Blackpool results - surprised to see quite a lot of Japanese contenders and Champions over the years.

First it was the movie medium. You remember the iconic film, "Shall We Dance?" That film related ballroom to everyday life, made it something a regular person can reach for - not a privileged activity just for specially trained athletes. And now today, we have anime. I think that's great.

By all means, put it out there and share.
